Business / Agriculture / Suspension: A process under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act by which the Environmental Protection Agency can suspend the use of a pesticide in order to prevent an imminent hazard resulting from its continued use. An emergency suspension takes effect immediately: under an ordinary suspension a registrant can request a hearing before the suspension goes into effect. Such a hearing process might take several months.
